  • Artists Seen: Photographs of Artists In the 21st Century A Project by David Moog

    The Burchfield Penney Art Center is partnering with photographer David Moog in a project we believe will be exciting and historically notable. In an unprecedented effort, Mr. Moog will attempt to make black & white portraits of all the working artists in Western New York. Painters, printer makers, sculptors, wood workers, potters, craftspeople, photographers, installation and performance artists, musicians, curators and gallery owners will be included.  We are not only inviting you, but also encouraging you, to participate with us in this undertaking. If you are unfamiliar with Mr. Moog’s work, you can find an archive of over 130 images and a biography on our website.

    Once the project is complete – the target is 2017 – we hope to have a unique and meaningful set of portraits which will add to our permanent record of the art community of Western New York at the beginning of the 21st century. We intend to periodically exhibit the portraits at the Burchfield Penney Art Center for decades to come and to include them in our online collection. The complete photo series can be viewed here, and a 2015 interview with the artist about the project can be found here.

    In the decades to come, and perhaps centuries from now, when gallery visitors experience the art in our collection their connection to the works will be enhanced by these portraits. This is the Center’s tribute to you and every artist who works to realize their personal vision.

    To set up a time to come in and participate, email David Moog directly or contact Scott Propeack at
